I thought I was just having a fun night, but then I found myself going back to her again and again.

One-night stands can be exciting and adventurous, but sometimes you just can’t get enough of someone.

That’s how I felt about “Sincerely, Your Gynecologist” by Ngozi Osuagwu. This book isn’t like the others that I can read in one sitting and forget about. It’s a book that I keep coming back to, one that I want to savour and absorb.

Written with a physician’s eye and a mother’s love, the book “Sincerely, Your Gynecologist” Ngozi Osuagwu shares a deep insight into the wellness of a woman’s health.

It’s a compilation of many letters written to several patients that covers a wide range of topics, including love, marriage, wellness, and more. I must say, it’s a beautiful book that not just covers the scope of the woman’s health but one that should be on the shelf of everyone who is concerned about her health and wellbeing.

In fact, it should be on every woman’s shelf and not just her shelf but her heart and mind because indeed it’s a shame that you’d be a woman and not be concerned about your health. The letters contained in the book are informative, educative as well as they are powerful and evocative, with a blend of heartfelt messages and frankness, characterized by vivid and understandable descriptions


I appreciate the author’s freedom of expression without restrictions or limitations. The letters and topics it contains are interspersed, so that one may read and be informed about issues that may not be of immediate concern.

Arranged in no particular order or sequence, the book is interesting and easy to read. “Sincerely Your Gynecologist” is a very informative book covering a vast amount of topics and facts in Obstetrics and Gynecology, even beyond. Written in a conversational tone, making it easy to understand and clearly relate to. Simple language and straightforward descriptions were used to convey complex health topics, thus making them accessible to a wide audience.

Reading through the pages of this extraordinary book, I found myself becoming aware of certain things I’d been oblivious of. I found issues and topics that echoed my own experiences.

The letters are thought-provoking and reading them gave me more than enough insight into what I’ve been doing wrong and right as regards my health and well-being as a young woman. The book also echoed the need for women to have not only richer conversations with their healthcare providers but also meaningful ones to help them better understand their own bodies for the enhancement of their overall health and well-being.

I won’t forget to add that the book had some humorous effects. I laughed as much as I learnt- indeed the things physician deal with in their day-to-day engagement with their patients is a lot.

As I came to the end of the book, I couldn’t help but like the last note, “What is wrong with being natural?”, it sounded like poetry to me, yeah, I’m an avid lover of such. I really liked the lines that said “I need him to see me as I am, not what I was. I do not want to go through the changes to be the person I was not, I need to be me. I needed to tell the world that I am beautiful as I am and not as I was”.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Sincerely Your Gynecologist” and found no faults in the book. I would give it a perfect rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

I recommend this book to young adults, lovers, and parents – you should gift this little book to every female you hold dear. It’s a must-read for any lady who is concerned about her health and well-being and who appreciates beautiful writing and deep insights into the woman’s health.
